Renewals are Signs of Good Things to Come for a Number of Schools
January 25, 2013 The relationship with your authorizer is critical to the existence of your school. Never is that more apparent then when your school is up for re-authorization. It is important to pursue opportunities to share positive information with your authorizer on a regular bases to maintain a consistent flow of positive reinforcement to them. I encourage you to also share information and invite the school board members, who will ultimately vote on your school's renewal, to your schools.
I'd like to congratulate two schools who were recently re-authorized for another five years. Aspire University Charter School was renewed by the Sylvan Union Elementary School District in the Modesto area with a unanimous vote. Ezequiel Tafoya Alvarado (ETA) Academy was not only renewed on a unanimous vote from Madera Unified, but their relationship is so strong their vote came as a result of being listed on their consent agenda. Congratulations and keep up the good work!
